I’ve had this piece of Walnut in the shop for a few months wondering what to do with it and make use of the inclusions. In this weekends organize/clean up exercise I found these Confetti lamps I purchased at a Rockler store probably a year ago. That’s when this idea hit me. It is 13” long and 4” high. The angle for the end cuts is 15 degrees. Sanded to 220 and has 2 coats of Minwax satin wipe-on poly.

Thanks for looking
